Who can donate blood?

It is an honour to be able to donate blood as you play a part in saving someone’s life or improving their health condition. Donating blood is a great way to help a fellow human being. But there may be reasons wherein you will be denied of an opportunity to donate blood.

• Your body should not weigh less than 45 kg.

• Your haemoglobin level should be normal - that is, 12.5 gm/cent.

• If you have suffered from diarrhea, jaundice, malaria, dengue, donate blood after a gap of six months, only when you completely recover.

• If you have tattoos imprinted recently, or have used drugs like cocaine and ganja (drugs that are prohibited by Indian Law) doctors recommend you to take a gap of six months. This is because, if the needles / syringes used are not clean enough, you have the chances of contracting HIV which would be detected only after a few months.
